Abstract

This article discusses Nietzsche’s interpretation of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection and the basis for his rejection of the major elements of Darwin’s overall scheme on observational grounds. Nietzsche’s further opposition to the attempt of Darwin and many of his followers to reconcile the “struggle for existence” with Christian ethics is the subject of the second half of the essay.
